The Metal Detector
Former Rolling Stones bassist Bill Wyman has maintained decades-long fascination with archaeology. But it wasn’t until he purchased his first metal detector in the early 1990s as subsequently uncovered the site of a Roman homestead that his mellow passion blossomed. 2007 saw the debut of the official Bill Wyman Signature Detector. “Metal-detecting is not just for anoraks or eccentrics," he said in a statement. “On any garden, country field, footpath, woodlands, beach or moorland you can find a huge variety of historical objects, all easily located with this high-quality metal detector." —Jeff Royer
